Paul Allen learns at the University of Washington the secrets of computer programming. After two years, he considers knowing enough things to start working. He is hired by a home automation company in Boston. But the company is a too small playground for this informatics bulimic.

He does not hesitate when his childhood friend Bill Gates asked him to associate with him in order to sell programming to others. Together, they found Microsoft and develop the first language MS DOS which they sell from 1981 to IBM.

Compensation by IBM of $ 35 for each copy allows Microsoft to build a small gold mine and make its IPO in 1986. Three years before, Paul Allen leaves the technical direction and preserves his position on the board of directors where he stays until 2000.
